Crispy chicken with a sweet-tart sauce is served alongside wilted spinach for this special meal. From Virginia Anthony: Jacksonville, Florida. Shallots are part of the onion family and have a mild onion-garlic flavor. In place of 3 to 4 shallots, use 1 medium onion plus a pinch of garlic powder or (if you like the taste of garlic) 1 minced garlic clove. Recipe published in Healthy Cooking April/May 2009.
